“All Hail King Julien” is back with its staggered release schedule. Today, we’re covering five episodes that will be made available on Thursday, April 2nd.
Eat Pray Love
He Blinded Me With Science
The Really Really Big Lie
One More Cup
King Julien is back with a new hedgehog friend that helps out with tech. His super ninja assassin friend is back, but the King is distracted by the various doings around his kingdom. Nothing really happens until the final episode dubbed “One More Cup”. One of King Julien’s greatest enemies has concocted a great plan to get the kingdom addicted to coffee.
The now cracked out caffeine freaks are undermining the rule of Law, as King Julien finds himself bowing to the pressures of addiction. If that wasn’t enough, the anti government group that has been formed during the early episodes has taken their plan to action. Julien’s assassin/bodyguard tries to fight against the collapse of society, but who will prevail?
Given that it’s a kid show that works on a fixed schedule, you get the ending that you expect. That being said, I do enjoy a villain yammering about their massive plan only to have it fall on deaf ears. I love how King Julien can’t stay focused long enough to understand how his rule is being challenged. That being said, maybe the five episode sprints don’t work against the show. After finishing this set, I was zoned out on the material enough that I didn’t want to revisit it for a few months. Maybe I’ll run it by the kiddo when she gets older.
